RGTSA Annual Conference

The RGTSA Annual Conference took place on Wednesday 20th May and was a great success.

The theme for the day was "Opening Books - Opening Minds", and saw a great turnout from primary and secondary practitioners from across the borough. The day was a chance to explore the power of words as a context for developing learning that engages and empowers. Delegates explored texts and contexts that promote an engagement with the written word and support children and young people in developing learning skills that permeate the curriculum

The key-note speakers, Professor Teresa Cremin and Elizabeth Laird, gave us a facinating incite into their lives and the importance of reading from the perspective of both a teaching practitioner and an author.

Delegates were also able to choose from a range of related workshops including; Grammar in context, Debate, Philosophy for children, Cognitive Acceleration, Creative Writing, Writing outside, Drama, Blogging, Exploring Poetry and The Power of Pictures.
